Charlie Trotter's vs Frontera? And Sunday dins in Chicago??

AnnieLS | Aug 15, 2009 06:28 PM

My husband and I will be in Chicago over a Saturday and Sunday night in September, leaving Monday aft.....we wanted to eat at Alinea but couldn't get a table. Also looked at Tru and L2O (can get in, but after 9pm, a bit late I think?!) Anyways, we did make a reservation at Charlie Trotter's. However, I keep reading so much about Frontera Grill and would love to try eating there....since they are not open on Sundays, we were wondering if it was something that shouldn't be missed......I know, I know, totally different vibe/food/EVERYTHING from Trotter's but was wondering if we should bail for Frontera? Are we crazy? And what about Sunday?? Lots of great past posts with suggestions but many of the places not open on Sundays. We're open to long as it's super yummy. Thanks!
